What is JUMVEA?

Japan is a leading source in the area of automobile industry. Within a year, Japan produced and export large numbers of vehicles. Not only new vehicles, but used vehicles also exported from Japan. With time popularity of Japanese used vehicles increases drastically and as a result large numbers of used vehicles are exported. It is easy to join the business of export for anyone. That increases the competition and ultimately leads to illegitimate export of vehicles such as illegally modified or stolen vehicles. To prevent used vehicle importers or buyers from fraud or being scammed while buying cars from Japan many organizations were formed and one such organization is JUMVEA.

Japan Used Motor Vehicle Exporters Alliance popularly abbreviated as JUMVEA established in the year 1995 on September 14. In the year 1997, the organization got approval from Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI). Today known as Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI). When the organization started there were only 60 members. But every year the number of members is increasing significantly and it has around 250 registered members now. Even though the office of JUMVEA is located in Tokyo, but the organization is covering almost whole Japan.
